You. Hi, swell family. I'm loving this. A To Z Poets challenge. So fun to celebrate some of my favorite voices and explore everyone else's choices. Today I have two. I couldn't narrow it down, but I'm going to start with Andrea Gibson. They are just such force of nature. They speak on not just LGBTQIA plus issues, but their journey through life and everything they've dealt with. Most recently, they've recovered from cancer

It's absolutely epic. This is big, big poetry. I think I've come across this poet once before on a YouTube video, and I think it brought me to tears. So that's another name for my list, and thank you so much for sharing it

Hey. Yes, they have quite a few books. The latest is called you better be Lightning. I don't have any of them. I would love to get them. I included a little synopsis of it on the screenshot there. And the awards it's gotten. I ran across them on Instagram. I don't remember, I was just probably scrolling and I was like, who is this incredible voice? But yeah, I put a link to their website in the description here
